Hilarious graduation cake mix-up


A graduation sendoff for an Indiana University student went hilariously wrong.

This is the cake that has gone viral, since a photo of it was posted on Facebook.

It all came about when Zionsville, Indiana mom Carol Gambrel ordered a cake for her daughter Laura's graduation.

It was supposed to have a picture of her face and a graduation cap drawn on top of her head.

The baker must have misheard the instructions.

They put a cat on the cake instead of a cap.

"We had so many laughs about it," Gambrel said. "We thought, you would think since we gave them the phone number that they might call, and ask are you sure you want a cat on the head? Lets see, diploma, congratulations, yeah this cake is screaming for a cat on the head."

Gambrel says the baker offered to scrape the cat off of the cake, and put a cap on it, but she wanted to take it home the way it was to give everyone a good laugh.

She hopes to preserve that half of the cat cake as long as she can.
